a.Qaballistic Meanings and Theory
. . . [Two] things are necessary before our present phase of evolution is achieved:a)
 perfect adjustment between all human beings,
(and with the non-human beings thatmake up the physical and superphysical worlds as well. This means joyful acceptanceof the conditions of the natural physical world, and a vital religious and mysticalawareness.) b)
the attainment of the Vision of God face to face
, which should never have been lost in the first place. As things are now, the Gulf and the Abyss betweenman’s different levels of being have to be bridged before this can be truly achieved.The means to this goal of all mankind could be put in even simpler terms, and hasalready been done so. ‘Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart and with allthy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.’(Luke x.27. and also Mat. Xxii.37., Mark xii.30., etc.)….
Path 15, Trump IV,
The Emperor 
, allows the penetrating Wisdom of 
to descend into
, the Sphere of the Mystic Intelligence, where it becomes available to ordinary humanintelligence and applicable to our mundane affairs as well as to our striving to the rarefied heights of theTree and, ultimately, to Union with God. It is Truth translated for and made available to our ordinaryconsciousness so that it can be applied to our most prosaic problems and needs. Its avatar is indeed theEmperor who translates his vast, comprehensive vision of universal principles of human existence into
tactical principles necessary in day-day-administrative executive decision-making at the most concretelevel. It is pure Force particularized and reified for use in practical affairs.
The Emperor 
thus demonstrates that the Power and Might of God are manifest at the densest, mostindividualized and particularized levels of existence as well as at the most rarefied and purified ones – that God is manifest in all Creation, on every level of it, and that the Truth and Light of God illuminatethe humblest, earthiest, most prosaic aspects of existence rather than being confined only to specialregions, times, ceremonies, and similar limiting factors and conditions.
The Emperor 
is Jesus teaching inthe world, mingling with publicans and sinners, making such simple, humble decisions as to what he andhis disciples would eat for dinner, finance their day-to-day needs, and similar earthy, basic, pragmaticthings.
The Emperor 
teaches us that God isn’t the exclusive property of priests and mystics. God is presentin all things, at every level and in every aspect of existence. Ultimately all things move, evolve, andcome to completion as aspects of the thrusting glory of Divinity as Pure Energy.The Yetziratic Text for this Path says that[the] Fifteenth Path is the Constituting Intelligence, so called because it constitutes thesubstance of creation in pure darkness, and men have spoken of the contemplations; itis that darkness spoken of in Scripture, Job xxxvii. 9, ‘and thick darkness a swaddling band for it.’(The complete passage from Job quoted above is:Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake forth, as if it had issued out of thewomb? When I made the cloud the garment thereof, and thick darkness a swaddling band for it, and brake up for it my decreed place, and set bars and doors, And said,Hitherto shalt thou come, but no further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed.) – Job 38:8-11Yetziratic title: Constituting Intelligence.Hebrew letter:
